Fudgy chocolate chip cookie with a hint of hazelnut and chocolate spread made  in an iron skillet.

Secret Recipe Club

It’s Secret Recipe Club group A reveal day. If you’re curious what the SRC is it’s kinda like the bloggy version of secret Santa. Each month you’re given the name of another blog and it’s your job to find a recipe that you’d like to make and blog about it. It started out with around 19 bloggers and was once a month and has grown to a group of around 300 and 4 groups.

Bizzy Bakes was the blog I got this month  Sweets were the first thing I searched for because I haven’t posted a dessert in months. I was torn between the chocolate fudgy cookies and the chewy chocolate cookies but ultimately decided on the fudgy ones when I noticed the recipe called for chocolate hazelnut spread.

The first batch of these I made the traditional way, then I decided to try something a little out of the norm. I remembered seeing a skillet chocolate chip cookie on a friend’s blog and decided to try that.

Fudgy Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Recipe by Micha

A gooey chocolate chip cookie baked in a skillet.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes


  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella)
  • 2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (the original didn’t call for it but salt accents sweetness very well)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Stir in vanilla and chocolate spread.

In another bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir. Mix in the chocolate chips with a spoon.

Place dough in the bottom of an oven proof skillet. I used cast iron. Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes. The cookie should still be slightly gooey in the middle and the edges set and browning.

Cool on a rack, cut into wedges and serve.

Verdict: The regular cookies were wonderfully fudgy, chewy and gooey  and the skillet version version seemed extra fudgy, chewy, and gooey which I think the best chocolate chip cookies are. Thanks for the great recipe Chaya!
